Can I qualify for FAFSA or loans if I am currently in default on a loan/loans?

If you owe the Department of Education, your eligibility to receive federal aid at any school will be lost until the debt is repaid or acceptable repayment arrangements are made. Student should work with their loan servicer to resolve the default status to an eligible one, or set up satisfactory repayment arrangements to reinstate their aid eligibility.
